THE 18TH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE WHC HAS ENDED. OUR 2023 AGM WILL BE HELD IN ISTANBUL INSHA’ALLAH!
The 18th AGM of WHC is over.
On November 15, the WHC general assembly was conducted. In this meeting, which was attended by most of the members, the problems encountered especially in Halal Certification were expressed and how to take precautions and the work to be done were discussed in detail.
It was decided to create a system to fight the contention and competition between Halal institutions, which is the most troublesome issue today, and profit-oriented institutions instead of serving Islam. For this purpose, the “Integrity and Ethics Committee” was formed within the WHC. 5 members were elected to this committee and they were instructed to start working immediately. The committee will prepare a road map within 1 month and submit it to the board of directors.
An election was held to replace a vacant member in the board of directors and Mahmoud Tatari from Halal Control was elected as a member.
Emphasis will be placed on efforts to increase public awareness of the WHC. To do this, members will be in close contact with local authorities in their area.
In addition, various problems encountered in Halal certification issues will be announced to the WHC management by the relevant member and early measures will be taken.
Other issues such as ISO, the status of certificates of non-member institutions, the status of critical products such as gelatin were also addressed.
It was proposed that the 2023 general assembly of the WHC be held in Istanbul and was accepted without objection. It was said that the end of October or the beginning of November would be easier for everyone in terms of travel, and it was requested to take these dates into account in the planning.
During the AGM, it was also decided that the Annual General Assembly meetings would be held as 2 or 3 days starting from 2023.
Another important decision is about the 19th AGM of WHC. This meeting will take place in Istanbul, Türkiye in 2023. The possible date are end of October and early November 2023.
The meeting was ended with the Dua’s that the decisions taken and the meeting held would be beneficial for the Ummah.
